We had the best summer last year into fall boating and swimming and we are looking forward to another great summer on the lake so I posted these pictures now so I can capture all the changes that the kids will go through this summer and how much they've grown and changed since last year! We hope you too have a great and safe summer especially around the water!!!

~ Children are our second chance to have a great parent-child relationship ~Laura Schlessinger
~ Children are the world's most valuable resource and its best hope for the future ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
~ Among the mind's powers is one that comes of itself to many children and artists. It need not be lost, to the end of his days, by anyone who has ever had it.

A child in the full health of his mind will put his hand flat on the summer lawn, feel it, and give a little shiver of private glee at the elastic firmness of the globe. ~ Charles E. Montaque 1867
~ There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colors are brighter, the air softer, and the morning more fragrant than ever again. ~ Elizabeth Lawrence
